What could be better than seeing Ryan Gosling in his pants? A: Benedict Cumberbatch accepting an award in his shorts.

At last night's National Television Awards, Benedict accepted the gong for Best TV Detective for his role in Sherlock, which was presented to him by none other than Kiefer Sutherland (sorry, Jack Bauer).

Sadly, he wasn't at the ceremony to collect his award but he did stream his acceptance speech live from LA. Initially it seemed that he was wearing a full suit but the camera panned down to reveal something completely different (it was shorts, obviously. Get your mind out of the gutter).

Anyway, you can watch the video below. YOU'RE WELCOME.
